PROJECTS

ADAPTIVE RESUE

A Passive house approach to reuse this historic silo building as an accessible green centre. My design goal was to create a space where people can socialize, have fun and grow their own food at the same time while keeping most of the facades intact. Heavy Timber, triple pane silicone/structural glazing natural stone and aged stained steel proposed for the addition to create a massing that respects the existing building and fits well with its architectural style.

The project included a feature accessible ramp, panoramic elevator, green and integrated solar panels energy production.
For more information please see below related links.

COMMERCIAL

A Major addition to 3-storey office building and change its occupancy to art gallery and studios. The design features a dramatic sloped green roof, tilted walls and columns to update the appearance of the boxy building. A pyramidic volume was added on the top of the existing building to create a connection with the addition and to act as a skylight.
A presentation video was created using Adobe Premier Pro and can be accessed via the below related links.


MIXED USE BUILDING

A 4-storey mixed used building proposed for 1056 Queen Street West, Toronto. The concept responded to the history of the Trinity-Bellwoods by selecting materials that matched in colour and texture to the surrounding buildings. Simultaneously, it responded to the site conditions by organizing the building massing around an
existing tree at the back corner of the lot.
Sustainable strategies included the use of Urban Farms and the reuse of graywater to lower storm-water runoff. Also, LiteZone™ windows proposed with R- value as high as of R17 to save more energy.
